PLEASE NOTE MY DIARY IS CURRENTLY FULL
There are times when life can be difficult and we may experience events that feel out of our control. I aim to offer a safe, confidential and compassionate space where together we can work through your problems and issues at a pace and depth that suits you. I believe that every unique person has the potential to live more fully and I can support you to find the inner resources to heal yourself and promote growth and lasting change.
I am a cognitive behavioural psychotherapist and humanistic counsellor and I can work in a variety of ways depending on what you bring and how you want to work. I am happy to answer any questions you may have and please feel free to ring me for a chat, or if you prefer I will answer text or email queries.
I work from the core values of honesty, respect, trust, acceptance and commitment to client well-being.
Since 2009 I have worked with a diverse range of people on a broad variety of issues including depression, anxiety, panic and agoraphobia, phobias, stress, loss, insomnia, bullying and low self-esteem.
I have particular experience working with anxiety, addiction, life transitions, low mood, confidence and self-acceptance, and those struggling with gender identity issues. I work with adults, young people and older people coping with changes in their life.
I have a special interest in working with personal development and as such I have worked as a personal development facilitator on a counsellor training degree programme.
I work from a discreet, peaceful, bright room a few minutes walk from Greenwich mainline station, DLR and major bus routes.
